Indices

Trade the world's top global
stock markets

Equity indices are an excellent indication of the general economic performance of a country, as opposed to a single stock that tracks the performance of only one company.

At CryptoAltum, we’ve added the top two global indices:

The second oldest US market index, the Dow Jones tracks 30 publicly owned blue-chip companies trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
The leading and most respected Japanese stock index, the Nikkei tracks the top 225 blue-chip companies trading on the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TYO).
